Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

Broken Built-in Diffuser Plate


Maybe for extended use, maybe a weak point of the flash, but my built-in diffuser plate was broken off from the flash. It's only one side of the little hinge that's broken off. Does anybody know where I can find a spare part to replace it, or how else I can repair it? Thanks.

How to diffuse flash on camera i have fixed flash not pop up

One inexpensive way would be to hold a thin white handkerchief or white tissue paper over the flash. Don't press it against the surface of the flash, just hold it loosely to cover the flash. Be careful the material doesn't extend over the lens.

Will not power on even after changing and testing the batteries. Only used maybe 30 times in last 2 years.

Check for the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. If you see them rusted, clean them gently with alcohol. Do not scrape with any sharp objects. Make sure the contacts are clean and reinsert the batteries. Get back if it is still dead.

My speedlite keeps flashing the zoom control and freezes

Make sure the built-in diffuser is pushed in all the way... that diffuser is only designed to work when in "14-mm" mode so whenever that diffuser is down, even just a little bit, the entire display will flash and 14 mm will be shown as the focal length of the flash.

Zoom range 14-17mm

make sure the diffusion dome and the built in wide angle adaptor are off. If the diffusion dome is on, it will only work as 14mm and 17mm without the diffuser but with the wide angle panel.
